Things are just getting better and better for our very own Sultan as Salman Khan acquitted in blackbuck poaching case.
After the massive success of Sultan, here is another great news for Salman Khan. The Rajasthan high court has given it’s final verdict in the 1998 case. The verdict declares Salman Khan acquitted in blackbuck poaching case.
Salman Khan was accused of killing one of the animals in Bhawad in the outskirts of Jodhpur on September 26, 1998 and another in Ghoda Farms on September 28, 1998. A case under the Arms Act was registered against him claiming that the arms used Salman during the poaching incident had expired licences and he used them illegally. A blackbuck is a protected animal under the Wildlife Protection Act and Salman Khan was in Jodhpur at that time for the shooting of Hum Saath Saath Hain.
In 2006, a lower court in Rajasthan had handed Salman Khan a five-year sentence but Salman had appealed to the Rajasthan High Court challenging the court’s decision. On this fateful day, the Rajasthan High Court has acquitted him in the Jodhpur blackbuck and chinkara poaching cases. Repotedly, Salman Khan has been given the benefit of doubt.
Are you happy with this decision of the High Court?
